Hospice is a way of caring for patients with end-of-life illnesses and supporting their family and loved ones through the illness and dying process. At Niagara Hospice, we believe every day is a gift and we value quality of life for each and every patient. As the only hospice provider in Niagara County, our staff and volunteers take pride in their compassionate service to others. Just one call to Niagara Hospice provides loved ones the physical, emotional, psychosocial, spiritual and bereavement care they need.

Hospice care is appropriate for people with any advanced stage illness, not just cancer, where the prognosis is a life expectancy of approximately six moths or less- if the illness were to run its normal course. Some patients receive hospice care beyond six months. In fact, studies show that people with end-of-life illnesses who choose hospice care often live longer that patients who do not elect hospice services.

The Hospice team consists of:

  • Physicians
  • Clinical Pharmacists
  • Nurses
  • Hospice Aides
  • Homemakers
  • Trained Volunteers
  • Medical Social Workers
  • Spiritual Care Coordinators
  • Massage Therapists
  • Allied Therapists and Support Staff
  • Bereavement Counselors
  • Pet Peace of Mind
